Astronomy Colloquium
Introducing FLAG: the phased array feed for the Green Bank Telescope
Date: Thursday, September 6th
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall, Coffee and cookies 3:30 PM. Talk Begins at 3:45 PM
Speaker: DJ Pisano, West Virginia University
Abstract: The Focal L-band Array on the GBT (FLAG) is a phased array receiver for the GBT with an equivalent sensitivity to the existing single feed receiver. It will speed up HI surveys by a factor of 5-7x and pulsar/transient surveys by a factor of a few. I will present the results from our commissioning observations and let you know how you can propose to use it in the future.
